Output has designed EP sleeves for drum ‘n’ bass artists Futuretech and Drumsound & Simon Bassline Smith. The Drumsound cover (pictured) takes inspiration from mapping conventions and geographical influences, says Output managing director Dan Moore, who designed the sleeve. It represents a simplified map of Derby, the label’s hometown, he adds. The EPs, on the Technique Recordings label, are available from early next month. The consultancy was appointed without a pitch on the strength of previous work for the label.
The visual system created by SomeOne is based on movement patterns of birds gliding on thermal columns, which allow them to travel long distances with ease.
